PATCH for Teens: Classroom Edition


PATCH for Teens: Classroom Edition is a toolkit that has been created for school health teachers, health-related professionals, youth leaders, and other adults looking to teach students, ages 14 – 18, about how to get the health care they need and deserve.

The video-based lesson was created by youth, for youth and can be customized to fit in a 45-90 minute time frame (completed all at once or over the course of multiple sessions) based on intended learning objectives and overall learning needs of students. Students will learn that they:

  1. Need and deserve a good relationship with their health care providers
  2. Have legal health care rights
  3. Have a personal responsibility to learn to manage their own health care
